Dog Names of Summer

Summer is officially upon us and everyone is out and about with their dogs, enjoying all the activities that Summer offers.

I must say that Summer is my favorite season! I love spending time with my dogs, in the flower garden, taking walks and relaxing on the porch.  What's your favorite part of Summer?

The only thing I don't like about Summer is that it slips away too quickly...
So before that happens, I wanted to share with you a list of dog names inspired by Summer flowers.  This completes the series of dog names inspired by the four seasons.  If you missed the other three seasons, you can find them under the Names label.

Dog Mom Diy project for a motivational water bottle. Step by step instructions


Before we get started with this DIY project, let me fill you in on what's been happening in my world.

It's been a week, today, that I returned from the BlogPaws conference in Myrtle Beach, SC.  I learned so much and met so many wonderful people, from brands, to bloggers and everyone in between.

At the conference, they had delicious, infused water that you could help yourself to, throughout the day. Such a nice touch and was it refreshing!

When I attended the BlogPaws conference, I had the pleasure of meeting many wonderful pet bloggers, who inspired me in different ways.

I, by chance, or maybe fate, met the PA (Purrsonal Assistant) to Bionic Basil, when I had stepped outside to give Tootsie some fresh air and a needed break.  I had no idea when I first began talking to the PA that she was even a blogger! I thought she was just someone staying at the hotel, on vacation.  After chatting for a while, I discovered who she was! I was absolutely thrilled to meet her and quite surprised, as I didn't know she was attending the BlogPaws conference.

The PA and I hit it off right away and had a wonderful chat about all sorts of things.  The one thing that has stuck in my mind and I will be forever grateful for, is she inspired me to drink more water.

Magical Moments Happen At BlogPaws

My experience at the BlogPaws conference, in Myrtle Beach, SC, was nothing less than magical. I don't mean magical in the sense of hocus-pocus. Rather, the magic that occurs within you, when you have an a-ha or defining moment.

Why you will want to attend a BlogPaws conference, where magical moments happen

I nearly backed out, from attending the conference, due to my anxiety of driving over 400 miles, to unknown territory, by myself.  Well, not quite by myself, Tootsie would be riding shotgun!

The month preceding the conference, I flipped back and forth, like a fish out of water.  I'm going to the conference, I'm not going, I'm going, maybe I won't go...

I then had the pleasure of connecting with Elizabeth Keene, with Chronicles of Cardigans, who is the Newbie Ambassador for BlogPaws. Her post filled with free BlogPaws conference encouragement, motivated me to push through my anxiety and fears.

Then, about a week before I was due to leave, I came across this quote:

Everything you have ever wanted is on the other side of fear quote.

"Everything you've ever wanted, is on the other side of fear" George Addair

A quote that motivated me to push through my fear and drive to the BlogPaws conference.  A conference that I had been dreaming about attending for almost a year!

Homemade Birdie Muffins For Your Feathered Friend

If you have a feathered friend of your own, or know someone who does, you are going to love this easy, homemade recipe for Birdie Muffins. Your feathered friend will too!

Homemade Birdie Muffins your feathered friends will enjoy snacking on.


We've been having quite the week here on the east coast,with Mother Nature!  Just when we thought Spring was here, Mother Nature decided to surprise us with a blizzard.

Since we are snowed in at the moment, I thought it would be the perfect time to make some birdie muffins for my Quaker parrot.

This homemade recipe is something I learned to make from the breeder I got my parrot from.  It's super  fast and easy to make, you can store the birdie muffins in the freezer and defrost as needed.

My Quaker parrot, Iris, loves her birdie muffins! She will ask for them when I haven't made a batch for awhile.  Unfortunately, she's very camera and video shy, so I can't get her to talk when she knows I'm recording.


Best Dog Names Inspired By Spring

Spring is just around the corner, a beautiful season filled with new beauty, hope and second chances.

A morning dog walk, in Spring, is like no other, with the smell of that crisp fresh air!  The Spring season offers an array of inspiration, with bright blue skies, chartreuse blades of grass, crocuses peaking out of the ground and flower buds popping amongst the tree branches.

What is you and your dogs favorite part of the Spring Season? My dogs and I love being out in the garden, discovering new growth in the flower beds, walks, and watching the birds build their nests.

I love every season, Mother Nature gifts us with, but I must say, Spring is at the top of my list!

To celebrate Spring's arrival, I'm sharing with you, a few dog names, that are inspired by Spring. Enjoy! Let me know if you choose one, on the list, for your newly adopted dog.


Savory Veggie Bites For Your Next Dog Party

We've been having an unusually mild winter this year and this past weekend was no exception. With beautiful blue skies, sunshine,  and temperatures in the 60's, it was the perfect opportunity to spend time outdoors with the dogs.

Tootsie's cousin, Mr A, was expected to be popping over for a visit, along with his Momma.  It seemed the perfect opportunity to do something special for all the dogs.

I didn't want to head to the store, knowing Mr A and his Momma would be arriving soon, so I did a little brainstorming, with some assistance from Mr W ...

I've been wanting to try out a few new treat recipes for our pups, that are both healthy and delicious.  I figured this was a great way  to accomplish my goal and have a special surprise for the dogs!

With the ingredients I had on hand, I was able to come up with this simple and easy recipe to make for the dogs.


The dogs loved these savory veggie bites so much, that I decided I needed to  share this  recipe with you!
